His key responsibilities involve helping Fortune 100 companies have successful seminars, Employee Recognition and Award Celebrations and live business meetings. He focuses on creating powerful marketing tools and educational messages, while motivating employees and customers alike. Steven excels in customer service, and has the ability to take an idea from a client and turn it into something tangible and marketable. He is ultimately responsible for all aspects of business operations, including overseeing the budget, planning, employee recruiting and marketing.
Since 2010, he has worked with companies small and large, parlaying his vast experience in corporate communications with Fortune 100 companies in the areas of network news, professional sports, live events, laser, musical entertainment and interactive webcasting to meet their electronic communication needs. Steve continues to collaborate and lend his technical expertise and creative talents to production companies like JSAV, PRG, AVTS, PSAV, The Avent Techs and others. Beginning in 2015, Mr. McGrath began working with RackSpace as their Technical Director of choice for national and International Solve events and other large sales and marketing roll outs.

While working at WRTH-AM as an announcer, he received a Bachelor of Science in Mass Communication with minors in Marketing and Music from Southern Illinois University, Edwardsville in 1978.
Looking back, Steven attributes much of his success to the fact that because of his diverse background in Radio, Laser Entertainment (LASERIUM), theater, corporate communication and News; he can successfully operate in almost any high-pressure environment. Steve also believes his philosophy of keeping his mouth shut and his ears open gives him an advantage. He has maximized results for his clients by finding the most effective ways to delive their message. Once they hire him, people tend to stay with him.
Going forward, Steve wants to continue to build his business, do a little less advertising and marketing, and further develop his existing client base, while managing the brand. He is keen to network, enhance his branding, and expand the business while exceeding customer expectation. Among the many highlights of his career includes working out of the St. Louis Bureau for ABC News traveling the country covering stories for Nightline, World News Tonight, Prime Time Live and Good Morning America for 5 years, working with presidents, major movers and shakers in the entertainment industry, and many of the major national advertising agencies, but Steve believes the best is yet to come and doesn’t want to rest on his laurels.
